Curious advertising campaign for King Vidor's 1925 "Big Parade." Uncertain location although the embossed Sierra Madre may offer a clue. Look closely at the writing: "America's First Transcontinental Trackless Train." Is it implicit that this rolling billboard will make it to or from one coast to the other under its own steam? What would be the point of advertising the Egyptian Theater anywhere except the LA area?
